Path to Membership Class: Exploring UU History & Beliefs

Sunday, October 9 at 11:15 AM
Offered BOTH In-Person and Online
All visitors, friends and members are invited to attend. For this class, we will be joined by an expert on UU history – Rev. Lisa Friedman! This is one of two classes offered on the path to membership at UUCM, allowing participants to share a bit of their own spiritual journeys and to interactively explore a broad overview of Unitarian and Universalist history and what it means to be a UU. Visitors and friends who have attended both of these “Exploring UUism” classes are eligible to become members of UUCM.

In-Person: The class is located on the lower level (accessible by stairs or elevator), in the Oak Room. Childcare will be available and will be held outside or in the nursery depending on child age/weather. Covid-19 safety protocols will be observed. Contact with any questions on these protocols

Online: Check your Friday Update email for the Zoom link. Please contact Gary with any questions about this class.

This adventure is designed with players who have no or limited experience in mind so new players are welcome and encouraged. The group will meet from 5pm to 8pm on the first and third Sundays starting on October 16, and will be expected to commit to attending at least the first five sessions. All materials will be provided. Please contact Topher at for more information.

Anti-Racism Discussion Group

Offered by the UU Congregation in Eau Claire, WI
2nd Sundays October-May from 7-8 PM (on Zoom)
Facilitated by Rev. Julianne Lepp. Minister
You are invited to join our year long anti-racism discussion group. For October 9 and November 13, we’ll read and discuss the book: Do Better: Spiritual Activism for Fighting and Healing from White Supremacy by Rachel Ricketts. Do Better is a revolutionary offering that addresses antiracism from a comprehensive, intersectional, and spiritually-aligned perspective. This actionable guidebook illustrates how to engage in the heart-centered and mindfulness-based practices that racial justice educator and healer Rachel Ricketts has developed to fight white supremacy from the inside out, in our personal lives and communities alike. It is a loving and assertive call to do the deep – and often uncomfortable – inner work that precipitates much-needed external and global change. To register or if you have questions, please contact Rev. Julianne Lepp

Soul Matters Circles Begin for 2022-23 Church Year

Soul Matters logo

We invite you to join a Soul Matters Circle this year at UUCM! These groups offer the opportunity to explore the monthly themes and connect with each other and our deepest selves. This year we will be offering two Circles which will meet one a month for 90 minutes from October-June. One Circle will meet in person on Sunday with Ministerial Intern Jill Braithwaite, and the other will meet Monday night via Zoom with Rev. Lisa.

Soul Matters Dates Table

Participants receive a resource packet each month with background information, questions for discussion and contemplation, spiritual exercises, wise words and other suggested resources. In each meeting, we share what it was like to “live with” the exercises and the questions as we share where the topic took us, and hear the experience of others. This sharing is at the heart of the Soul Matters program and our experience is further deepened by the group’s sharing.

Newcomers and friends are especially welcome, and childcare is available! Click here to register and reach out to Rev. Lisa or Ministerial Intern Jill Braithwaite with any questions.
